Kids of all ages will enjoy building these LEGO® projects inspired by the summer Olympic games! Show them these ideas to get them started, and then see what other events they can build.

It would also be great to build LEGO® Olympic events together – a fun family night idea!

Build the LEGO Summer Olympic Games

Project #1: Olympic Rings

Build the rings flat on a base plate, or build them free standing with larger bricks. The rings (and flags – see below) would also be fun to use as decorations for an Olympics watching party.

Project #2: The Olympic Torch

Build the LEGO Summer Olympic Games

Our boxer figure (we don’t have many athletes!) is lighting the torch! The hand held torch is a telescope brick, then two 1 x 1 round plates (flat bricks), then a disk thing. The fire is just stuck into the disk.

Project #3: Diving

We built this diving pool with a bunch of 2 x 4 light blue plates (flat bricks). I found this color at our local LEGO® store.

Project #4: Gymnastics

Build the LEGO Summer Olympic Games

We built a balance beam, pommel horse, and uneven bars. This is my favorite project!

Here are the pieces we used to build the pommel horse:

Aidan built the uneven bars with Technic rods and connectors.

And the balance beam is obviously quite simple.

Project #5: Flags

We only built the US flag, but it would be so awesome to build flags from countries around the world! Check out these LEGO flags for more inspiration!
